Bath City 2-0 Kidderminster Harriers

Alex Russell scored on his Bath City debut as they moved out of the Blue Square Bet Premier relegation zone with a comfortable win over Kidderminster.

Their opener came from the penalty spot when Kaid Mohamed fired home after Chris McPhee fouled Marley Watkins just inside the box.

Lee Morris went close to levelling, but his low drive was parried away to safety by Bath keeper Ryan Robinson.

Russell made the game safe when he headed home a Marley Watkins throw-in.

Bath City assistant boss Lee Howells told BBC Radio Bristol:
"We played some good football, created some good chances and for the first time this season the luck has gone our way for once.

"We lost to Wimbledon 4-0 and they beat them 2-0 so we were fearing the worst but they've played two games in three days and we went at them quite quick and caught them napping.

"The thing with Alex [Russell] is he's very intelligent, played a lot of League football and he made a big difference tonight."

Kidderminster manager Steve Burr told BBC Hereford & Worcester:
"We've played quite well tonight and I felt that was particularly so in the first half.

"The penalty just before half-time has killed us a bit as it meant us chasing the game.

"But I feel that on another day we could easily have got something out of this tonight."
